Commenting on the team’s performance, B Selvaraj, Team Manager, TVS Racing said,
This was a difficult round for the team as our defending champion, Jagan was leading for a large part of the race but unfortunately could not capitalize this for a win. Ahamed was unlucky with the crash but I am quite impressed with Deepak’s consistent performance. We have learnt a lot from the races and I am confident the team will bounce back in the next round.
